Plus, I know how the Extremis-powered villains at the end were supposed to be uber and all that but plenty of the JARVIS-powered suits were just shredded by their bare hands. I dunno - compared to taking on a tank in the first film the suits just seemed weaker this go-round.
The Extremis soldiers weren't using just their enhanced strength on the Armors, they were also using their heat generation powers too. That was what was carving the suits more than anything else. We never saw Tony facing off with anyone that could generate melting heat before. Heck, one major weakness of the armor in the first film was dealing with extreme cold.
Yeah, and it was enough to force Rhodey out. Good point.
